I think this is the key point, you split the styling in two steps, structure,
and decoration. XSLT is good for the former, CSS for the latter.

But when I think of it, we really don't have to wait for XSL-FO 2 for
this to happen. XSL-FO++ (with CSS) could be handled in a preprocessor
yielding XSL-FO 1.0 as its output.
